Well today I got an estimate from the guys insurance company who hit her. So instead of using new parts they called a salvage yard to find the door and stuff. Anyway still $1700 in damages.

I removed the drivers side step, the passenger side got removed 2 weeks ago in the accident. Now just need to paint the frame and order my sliders to cover up the scratches

Put my new driving lights on. I got the brackets from Quadratec and the lights from Nik at JeepWest. I have heard of people having problems with the window hinge screws. A heat gun is the answer. I put the heat gun really close to the screw for about 2 minutes (each screw) and Ta-Da, the screws came right out.

I love that feature! Did you have your garage do it and provide a new key, etc. ? Or did you make that happen?? I'm considering it too. How much was it?

I got tired of water coming through my shifter boot when I hit larger puddles or when the large puddles jumped out in front of me. I removed the center console and then the large cover plater under that, then I cut out the crappy rubber "boot" and installed a tall universal boot under the old "boot frame" sealed with silicone. I also resealed the large cover plate with silicone.

Washed it, Scrubbed the soft top. Dried it real good and stored it for the winter. :-(

Put the hard top on and in a minute I'm going to go find a mud puddle. It's raining out. :-)

Nope tank is that black plastic box you see in front of the axle on the passager side.
